FAQ


Here you can read answers on the most frequently asked questions!

 

Question 01: Where do you usually buy your wigs?

I really like to buy at Kawaii Story, Ladie’s Hair, Prettyland and Lucaille.

 

Question 02: Where do you usually buy your contacts?

I currently buy the most at Matlens and Pinky Paradise.

 

Question 03: Do you take commissions?

No. Sorry I have no time to make commissions.

 

Question 04: Can you visit the con in my country?

I visit many cons on the globe and I’m really happy to see so many new countries. When I travel outside from Germany, the cons invite me as a convention guest. That means the con pays flight and hotel for me and in return I work for them as a judge/panelist/performer/advertiser. I sadly am not rich enough to pay the flights outside of Germany by myself. So if you want that I come and visit your country, you can talk to an organizer of a local convention. Maybe they are interested to work with me together.

Question 05: Which patterns did you use? Can you help me with mine? Can you send me your old patterns?

When I sew, I do not use „professional patterns“. I learned just by doing and trying out when I was 15. I had no idea about patterns and stuff and I started to develop my own kind of patterns. Now I´m totally used to my own kind of patterns, I made a „basic body“-pattern from my own body and modify it every time. For every new kind of shape that appears I think about how the construction could look drawn flat on a paper.
If you need professional patterns to use for your own costumes, there are many people who sell sewing patterns on f.e. etsy. Sometimes you can also find tutorials about cosplay related patterns on deviantart or on youtube.

 

Question 06: Where do you buy your fabrics?

From various stores. Also I buy some fabrics in local stores or in online stores.
Some pages I like to use are:
Stoff4You
Stoffmeile
Stoffe.de
Stoffe Hemmers
Stoffe Tetik
Stoffmix
Stoffe aus Berlin
Stoff Am Stück
Stoffkontor

 

Question 07: How long do you work on your costumes? How much do they cost?

Depends on the costume. I’m a VERY slow seamstress. I need a lot of time to make something like I want to have it. It’s always very important for me that the costume insides do not look messy. I try to make everything as good as I can and do not rush it. Also the costs vary a lot. Mostly between 30 and 300 €.

 

Question 08: When did you start cosplay and what was your first costume? Why did you start?

I started to cosplay in 2004 and my first costume was Eclair from Kiddy Grade. Before I even knew cosplay, I also dressed up as a kid with my friends as Sailor Moon, Buffy or some Stargate characters.
I just visited my first convention as a normal visitor in casual clothes. There I saw cosplay and thought it would be super cool! Next year on the same con, I wore my first handmade costume. It was so much fun that I continued. Now together with many friends and my boyfriend, cosplay became a passion.

 

Question 9: How do you find your shooting locations? Do you have to pay to use them?

I just keep my eyes open if I see something when I’m on the way with my car, or meeting friends somewhere. Also google is a great helper to find nice locations. I google stuff like „medieval castle in [cityname]“ and see what I can find ;D! Some locations are free to use, others cost money.
